Growing up

posted 16 April 2002


They don't know what I've been thinking
Overflowing cup I'm drinking
Superdrug that I've been taking
Twisting all my thoughts

Hearing but not listening
Open eyes but they're not seeing
Open minds shut tight no blinking
New thoughts echoing from old

Silly child what are you saying
Silly brain just cool the blood
Got no need to blow things open
Got no need to slow the flood

Older world is best today
There's no other anyway
Nothing new is happening
So what is there to change?

They don't know what I've been thinking
Overflowing cup I'm drinking
Superdrug that I've been taking
Twisting all my thoughts

Little prison made of kid gloves
Kept a child by too much love
Little darling please don't shove
Nothing out there anyway

Don't get big that's problematic
Keep your brain on automatic
Why must you be so erratic?
You're not the one we used to love

Feel the guilt for being different
Feel the pain of separate living
Don't let on your real intent
Crush the urge of constant giving

They don't know what I've been thinking
Overflowing cup I'm drinking
Superdrug that I've been taking
Twisting all my thoughts

Life's a drug and it's addictive
It's not the same for everyone
Some it takes them high and different
Who cares what happens to the others?
